Knowing Beats Per Minute of a Tune ( mp3 )

Oct 25, 2011 at 7:12 PM

I have gone through all of the posts here and have not seen anything mentioning how to ascertain the Beats Per Minute of an MP3.  In web searches, there are some complex formulas but I am wondering if anyone has discovered a more simplistic method and using a sample of an MP3 to get a general BPM reading.  Yes, there are standalone programs available, but I would really like to have this working within my framework using NAudio.  Has anyone got this working ?    Thanks

No, I'm afraid NAudio does not have this capability, and you do have to use fairly complex audio analysis to do a good job of BPM detection
